Women's Auxiliary Photography Session Fundraiser

Troop 465's Women's Auxiliary is pleased to sponsor a photography session fundraiser for the Troop. Please follow the link to sign up for a sitting. The sessions will be held on Saturday, October 31st and Sunday, November 1st at the Scout hut.

The cost is $30 for a 15 minute sitting (cash or checks made payable to Troop 465). You will receive a CD with all of your photos from the session. We will have many backgrounds and props to choose from for each session. This is a great opportunity to have family photos made for your Christmas cards or to dress your little ones up in their Halloween costumes and have their picture made before you head out for Trick-or-Treating on Halloween night.

Please share this link with your family and friends! This is not just limited to our Scout families. Here's a collage of sample pictures from our photographer (Cody Lamanac - College Kid Photography) for your viewing pleasure.

Parents, we also need assistance during the sessions with making quick prop changes.

For questions or to sign up to help, please contact Lynn Lamanac or Tarah Sears at

2016 Scouting Registration

It has been another great year to be part of Troop 465 and we have our sights set on 2016.

Registration for the 2016 Scouting year beginning in January is here. On behalf of Troop 465 and Troop 465 Alumni, Inc., I would like to thank everyone for your ongoing support of our Scouts and organization. We continue to be recognized as one of the leading Scout Troops in the Atlanta Area Council.

The recharter/registration process for this year is the same as last year. Following are the steps that must be completed to register for 2016:

- A 2016 Recharter Roster Information Form must be completed for each Scout/adult member of the Troop and signed by an adult (you may list multiple people on one form if desired).

- BSA Annual Health and Medical Record, parts A&B are to be completed and turned in with your information sheet and payment. These forms may be filled out and signed by a parent. We will also need a current copy of a medical insurance card to keep in the Troop records. You may also submit a BSA Annual Health and Medical Record, part C if you choose, but it is not required at this time.

- Payment for annual dues must be submitted. Dues will remain the same for 2016

- For adult leaders, you must have a valid Youth Protection Certificate. You will be contacted if your certificate is expiring.

All requested items and payment must be received by the close of the Troop meeting on Monday November 2, 2015 to meet our registration deadline. All items are to be submitted together. A check list is included on the Recharter Roster Information Form.

Please turn in your form(s) with payment on any Monday night. We will have a box and an adult leader inside the Scout hut to accept applications and answer any questions.

Lastly, our troop does have a limited amount of scholarship funds available. Please see Mr. Lamanac or me as needed.

Phil Ergle, Committee Chair

The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America, incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916, is to:

Provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character.

Train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship.

Develop personal fitness.

How you can get involved:

JOIN as a youth member with Troop 465.

VOLUNTEER as a Troop Committee member or Assistant Scoutmaster

GIVE to 465 Alumni Inc. to support Troop 465's sponsor.

  Serving youth for over 50 years, Troop 465 has had a proud heritage of molding boys into men according to the criteria listed above. Our Scoutmaster Emeritus, George Lingefelt, say's "If you want boys to become leaders, you have to train them and then let them lead", and thus began our "boy-lead troop" mind set. Mike Lamanac is our current Scoutmaster and passes these skills on. In fact, Scoutmaster Lamanac is only our 6th Scoutmaster since 1963.

Since 1996, the Troop Sponsor has been 465 Alumni, Inc., dba Friends of Troop 465, a non-profit organization specifically enacted to support Troop 465 both financially and philosophically. Troop 465 has a permanent Scout Hut, on over 3 acres, thanks to the generosity and foresight of 465 Alumni, Inc.

Troop 465 is unique because of the tremendous support from our members and their families. If you would like more information about joining troop 465, please click here.
